Baltics’ first ‘Radisson’ hotel opens in Riga

The Baltic countries already have a multitude of Radisson properties, but this one is the first under the new upscale hotel brand ‘Radisson’.

Radisson Hotel Group’s new upscale hotel brand ‘Radisson’ has opened its doors in Riga, where Radisson Hotel Old Town Riga has been developed in collaboration with long-term partner Astor Group and is a rebranding of the former Astor Riga Hotel.

Built in 1876 by renowned Latvian architect Jānis Baumanis, the structure is “a stunning property situated at the entrance of the Old Town,” Radisson says, with 60 “beautifully designed guestrooms and suites”.

“We’re delighted to bring the first Radisson hotel to the Baltic region and to continue our fruitful collaboration with Astor Group. With this hotel, we introduce a new brand and new hotel experiences for our guests,” said Tom Flanagan Karttunen, Radisson Hotel Group’s area senior vice president for northern Europe.

Dining, meetings
At the hotel’s restaurant, the chef offers “dishes made from products of highest quality” where “through the large windows, guests can enjoy the magnificent atmosphere of the city right from their table” and from “a harmonic summer terrace”.

The hotel is also a venue for meetings, seminars, workshops and festivities, “with an experienced conference team who knows how to create memorable meetings for all its guests”, the group says.

The partnership with Astor Group in the Baltics includes several hotels in operation and under development.
